According to the press release from Titan Publishing, the cover was designed exclusively for the San Diego Comic-Con and will be available to fans who visit the Titan booth during the event later this month (booth #5537).
The magazine cover will feature characters from the graphic novel, and will have the words San Diego Comic Con Exclusive printed on the front. Only a limited number of copies have been printed, so you better get to the Titan booth quick and claim your copy!
For everyone else, an alternate cover will be published featuring none other than Norman Reedus!
Titan Publishing promises that Issue #9 will be very popular: "Two words: Daryl Dixon! Yes, fan favorite and this issue’s cover star, Norman Reedus is in the house as he talks us through the dramatic and traumatic events of season four, from losing the prison to saying goodbye to old friends and welcoming new arrivals. Elsewhere, we take a special look at those who haven't been so lucky at surviving, including how they snuffed it and why. Comic creator and TV show executive producer Robert Kirkman rounds up what else is going on in The Walking Dead universe, from ‘All Out War – Part 2’ to filming season five and everything inbetween. TWDM #9 is packed with exciting new and exclusive content."
Expect Issue #9 to hit the newstands in late July 2014.
